Horn Spring

Postby haliaetus » August 8th, 2008, 12:12 am

Have any of you paddled up to Horn Spring from Natural Bridge? I've gone up around 1.5 miles, but never all the way.

Ive been thinking about taking my Yak in there for a few weeks.
Let us know if you try it out... I'll do the same.

Did anybody ever try this? I've always wanted to try it but it's been on the back burner since Natural Bridge is 1 of those places they'll probably never close off. My father took me to Horn Spring and the old wooden bridge alot back in the day.

I grew up in that area and frequented this area a lot. It’s been probably 20 years since I took a Jon boat up to the spring. I do know that there are a lot of large trees across the river now though.

There was 1 cypress tree laying across the river the last couple of times I went pretty far up (15 years ago maybe) that I wouldn't doubt was the world record. You'd have to literally drag your boat across it like when you were dragging it in the yard rather than just slip over it like other logs. As for the other logs, we've had so much flooding that I wouldn't doubt that they washed out. Of course, we've also had 2 hurricanes and a tropical storm :smt012 :smt012 :smt012

Give me yellowflies over mosquitoes or sand gnats every time lol!

I went pretty far up there a few weeks back, the yellow flies like to picked me up and carried me off.

The upper St Mark's is a sad reflection of what it was 10 years ago. It used to be clear with lots of eel grass and ate up with bass and bream of all kinds. All the eel grass died some years back, it's mud and logs and black water now. Still fish there but not near as good as it used to be.
